Hévíz is a town in Zala county, Hungary.
In Hévíz, medicinal spa tourism goes back to a past of over 200 years. The town is famous for its manicured parks, safety, hospitality and all-year round cultural life. The Hévíz lake is the world’s biggest biologically active natural medicinal lake. Its temperature is the result of the cold and warm springs’ water gushing from the depth of the earth, which get mixed in the spring cave at 38 meters at a rate of 410 litres 40 °C (104 °F) water per second. Due to this abundance, the whole amount of water in the lake gets replenished every three days. The temperature of the lake on the surface reaches 37-38 °C (98.6-100.4 °F) and it does not go below 24-26 °C (75.2-78.8 °F) even in winter, which makes it suitable for bathing all the year round. Thanks to its unique surroundings, its flora and fauna are also special. The red water lilies blossoms late into the autumn.

Its health-keeping force, rich mineral content facilitates the treatment of other diseases as well.
